  1. Hello! I’m an Asian student with offers of admission to the counseling graduate program at both Penn State and UPenn. I’m having a hard time deciding. Penn State’s program is ranked among the top ten, but UPenn seems to be more reputed as a school. However UPenn’s program is only a year long including the practicum , while Penn State offers a two year program with a practicum of 1.5 years. My goal is to pursue doctoral study (not seek licensure for practice) so I’m wondering if I should go ahead with UPenn. I will have to take a loan for either (and the tuition is in the same ball park),
  2. Hi folks! Last month I was accepted to the South Asian Studies M.A. program at Columbia GSAS with $10,000 scholarship. (There's another thread on it, but it's quite old-2011). I was allowed to deefer admission until fall 2019. Did anyone else apply and/or get accepted to the program, or is a current student/grad? A couple questions: Will $40,000 be enough for cost of living for fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020? That's how much I should have saved up. How competitive is it to get the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship? Do most people who
  3. Hello everyone, I am currently an undergraduate student studying History at SUNY Oneonta. My current GPA at SUNY O is 3.93, and I am working for the department chair as a research assistantship (funded work). I have worked as a research assistant for another professor, and I will be working as a teaching assistant next semester. I am also learning Russian and French, and I will be studying abroad in Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately, my academic history is hardly great outside of SUNY Oneonta. I started college when I was 16 at SUNY Delhi. I did 100 level classes with a mix of A's and
  4. Did a search for "columbia 2018" and didn't find anything, so I thought I'd create a thread! Anyone else send in their deposit?
  5. As I have been investigating the biographies of PhD students in top tier history programs, I have been compiling a spreadsheet of where each student received his/her undergraduate degree(s) and Master's degree(s). There has been a bit of discussion in this forum lately about the importance of "Master's degree prestige" in applying to top tier PhD programs, so I hope this list is helpful to other users: University of Chicago 44 history grad students list their pre-PhD degrees on their Chicago webpages 40 came into the PhD program with a Bachelor's and Master's degree; 4 only had
  6. Hey y'all! I'm a prospective Computer Science PhD student interested in natural language processing. I've been accepted into a certain Ivy with a great reputation in a great location, but a location which happens to be extremely expensive, as most east-coast cities are. I've also been accepted into another school (henceforth Great School) whose research interests are a bit closer to mine and with a similar--if slightly lower--level of prestige, and in a much cheaper (but also much more dangerous) location. This is a 5-year program, so I want to make sure I'll be happy where I end up. How shoul
  7. Is anyone interested in mutual assistance with their applications to universities for masters and phd? I'm thinking reviewing each other's statement of purpose, offering suggestions, reviewing applications and answers to their questions, etc. Tips on studying for the GRE, etc? All free mutual assistance. I am applying to a masters degree at an ivy league school. We can use this forum or other platforms. Hope to hear from people.
  8. I am wait-listed at my top choice (ivy league) and I'm wondering where everyone has been accepted, what your subfields are, and which offer you may accept. Thanks!
  9. Hello, So I have been admitted into a top PhD program in anthropology at one of these northeastern ivy league schools that I never thought I would actually get in to. The program seems great, the funding is amazing but there are no professors really related to my topic (in the broad sense). They are some professors related to my secondary field of interest (environmental anthropology) and to the region I want to work, which is what my potential advisor's research is on but my main field of research is not represented. The other schools I got into have professors more linked to my t
  10. What should one do? Pay $50,000 tuition at an ivy league university, or pay $0 - $10,000 at some other university (say any US university with QS world ranking below 250)
  11. Having gone through the application process at American universities, I have found the State universities to have the friendliest application portals. They usually have the same interface and one can easily go through all the pages/tabs/questions etc. The recommendation list can be updated any time before the deadline. More importantly, they send the recommendation requests immediately after filling in the details. The best part is the payment system where it is a breeze to pay fees for international applicants like me. They accept many, if not all, types of credit/debit cards. Not to mention
  12. What are some notable American/Canadian Philosophy PhD programs with Accelerated Tracks for those with a Masters degree in philosophy.
  13. What are some notable American/Canadian History PhD programs with Accelerated Tracks for those with a Masters degree in history. A program like Duke's.
  14. Dear all, My specialism is political thought and intellectual history. At top US institutions like Princeton and Harvard, would I have a greater chance of admission if I apply for PhD programs in history, or in political science? Which field is less competitive in top research universities? Thanks, Dem
  15. Hey everyone. I'm really sorry if you've seen this sort of thread a billion times and have gotten sick of it, but I had trouble locating a thread like this that actually applies directly to me. I graduated this year with a BA from University College London, and am set to begin a master's course at LSE this fall. For my undergraduate education, I had to write a 10000 word dissertation based on my original research, and will have to write a 15000 for my master's course. After I am done at LSE, I hope to undertake a PhD in political science (focusing on political philosophy and
  16. Are you looking to reach an Ivy League or your dream school? I can help with the process. Not too long ago, I was in your shoes. I thought that attending a great university or an Ivy League meant that you had to be at the top of your class or be really rich. I was neither. In fact, I was the first person in my immediate and extended family to go to college! Needless to say, I had no clue about the college/grad school application process, but I was motivated to change my destiny and willing to learn. I received a full-tuition, four-year leadership scholarship to attend a top private
  17. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! Bachelors: Psychology Masters of Science: Human Cognitive Neuropsychology Undergrad overall GPA (I had one horrible semester): 3.465 Undergrad Psychology GPA: 3.8 I am a horrible test taker: -GRE Verbal: 149; 42% -GRE Quant: 146; 24% -GRE Writing: 4.5; 82% Research experience: 3 years (Research technician in EEG , fMRI and clinical lab); 3 years (Project coordinator at upper limb prosthesis research lab) Clinical experience: 3 years (Clinical lab working with patients with
  18. Hi all, I'm an international relations major who speaks a few lesser-known languages with several years in management consulting under my belt, and I'm planning to apply to urban planning/public policy programs this fall. I'd like my classes to have a strong international focus as well as give me a solid understanding of quantitative (statistics) skills and technical (GIS, data management, data visualization using R, Python, etc) skills, as I didn't get these in undergrad either because they didn't mesh with my qualitative studies or were too stovepiped at the time in the engineering/math
  19. Hello all! I recently started the application process again, applying to PhD programs, specifically Clinical psychology programs. One thing I've always been told is that APA accredited, Clinical psychology programs are extremely competitive. Because my undergrad GPA was so low: 2.78, I never applied to a PhD program, but instead went straight into a Master's program at Drexel Univ. I've managed to keep an okay GPA of 3.77, along with working as a Research assistant and interning in a psychiatric hospital. So with all this being said, do you think I would competitive for admissions into an
  20. I was wanting to apply to Harvard's Graduate School of Education. I'd be doing the Prevention Science and Practice with maybe the CAS the following year. I have a good GPA but don't have a lot of experience. I was told by all of my grad schools that they didn't require experience and it would be good if I had it in case everything else wasn't balanced out. I looked at several other Ivy Leagues in social work and I really liked Columbia and Harvard's the best. I have yet to take my GRE and am super nervous for that. Anyone else been accepted by Harvard to tell me what they're lookin
  21. I am majoring in Child Protection and Juvenile Justice. I am getting a very good GPA, but I haven't taken the GRE test yet. I plan to take that in the coming months, before the summer when I start applying to grad schools. Yale is my Ivy League that I really want to go to. I'm attracted to the campus, the curriculum, everything about the school stands out to me. Don't get me wrong, I am also applying to other Ivies for grad school, but this is the only one that I would have to apply for public health. I got my AA in psychology and was going to do behavioral science at my current uni
  22. I am going to a private university in Nebraska and I'm in the accelerated degree program, which means I'll be done in March of 2017. I'm currently getting a 4.0 gpa. If everything holds up, I'll graduate with a 4.0 and get on the Dean's Honors List. I'm planning on applying to eight graduate schools, three of which are Ivies. I called each grad school and asked if there was a set amount of experience to get into their program and they all replied with no. They said they mostly look at the parts of your application that are your personal statement and your GPA and GRE scores. I am majoring in
